Luxurious Relaxation in a Bathtub – Bath Foams for Stress Relief

Whether it's due to everyday stress, the ever-increasing pace we're forced to keep up with, or simply having less time to dedicate to ourselves, when we return home after a long day, we need to take a moment for an activity that allows us to rejuvenate both body and mind. 

There's nothing better we can do for a perfect unwind than to immerse ourselves in a warm bath and enjoy moments of relaxation.

Benefits of Soaking in a Bathtub

Aside from relaxation and mood improvement, soaking in the tub has several health effects on our body. Let's uncover together what we can gain from immersing ourselves in warm water. 


Improves Sleep Quality

If you treat yourself to a warm bath before bedtime, the warmth of the water evokes the warmth of blankets, which has a calming effect on both body and mind. Be careful not to fill the tub with water that is too hot (the temperature for a relaxing bath should be 35 to 38 degrees Celsius). You don't need to use a thermometer; simply, when you immerse yourself in the water, you shouldn't feel cold, but you shouldn't sweat either. The duration of the bath should not exceed 20 minutes (bathing for much longer should be done cautiously, as it can cause circulation problems). You don't have to spend the whole evening in the tub; just a quarter of an hour is enough to relax and release the tension of the day.


Lowers Cortisol Levels and Triggers Endorphin Release

A warm bath helps reduce cortisol levels. Cortisol - or the stress hormone - is released in large quantities during stressful situations and also enhances the effects of adrenaline and noradrenaline, which are other stress hormones. Chronically elevated cortisol levels have a negative impact on human health and immunity. In addition, warm water helps release endorphins into the bloodstream, the hormone of happiness and pain relief. Moreover, if you add bath foam to the water, fragrant bubbles will further enhance the feeling of comfort and relaxation.


Improves Blood Circulation

A warm bath at the end of the day improves blood circulation. This is especially true for those who have to stay in one position for a long time due to work, whether standing or sitting. It prevents venous insufficiency and the development of varicose veins, and relaxes the muscles. Even if you want to prevent a migraine, simply direct the stream of water onto the neck and head area for a few seconds.


A warm bath is a good helper in case of a cold because it helps dissolve mucus, and viruses reproduce more slowly in warmth. However, avoid a warm bath when you have a fever, as staying in warm water would stress the body even more and cause more harm than good.


Leaves your Skin as Smooth as Silk

Last but not least, a bath also has an aesthetic effect. During the night, the body produces the most oil. An evening warm bath prepares the skin for this process, thus helping your skin become smoother and more hydrated in the morning.

How to Prepare a Relaxing Bath

To unwind pleasantly after a challenging day, you don't have to visit expensive spas. Just a few simple tricks can turn your bathroom into a place of luxury and relaxation.


  • First and foremost, silence your mobile phone and refrain from answering work calls. Remember, you're at home, and this time is just for you. Leave solving complex work problems for the morning.
  • Treat yourself to some relaxing music during your bath, or perhaps listen to an audiobook, or simply immerse yourself in your thoughts in silence.
  • Dim the harsh light or replace artificial light with candles. Of course, place the candles in a safe spot so you won't have to extinguish a burning robe or rug instead of enjoying your bath.
  • If you have a heater in the bathroom, we recommend placing a towel on it. It's very pleasant to wrap yourself in a warm towel after a hot bath. Moreover, this way your body won't cool down abruptly after the bath, but gradually.
  • After your bath, don't forget about moisturising your skin. After drying off, massage body lotion or cream onto all parts of your body to keep your skin smooth and soft.
  • Put a bath foam to your bath. Adding Puella bath foam with your favourite scent will amplify moments of relaxation. Among the wide range of products on the market, Puella bath foams stand out.
